We know the future of any community rests in part on the promise and potential of its youth. That is why the Iowa West Foundation supports programs which build a continuum of access and excellence for students — from preschool through adult learning.

Over the last 10 years, $12.7 million in grants have been awarded throughout Pottawattamie County for all-day preschool programs in public school districts.

The goal is to provide quality programs for at-risk four-year old children. All teachers are fully licensed and certified to teach preschool age children, and these teachers are supported by trained paraprofessionals. In addition, the districts have adopted a curriculum framework, which uses an active learning approach and monitors ongoing development.
